I am not sure how we are celebrating Memorial Day so soon! It seems as if we are just beginning the 2013/14 school year! We have accomplished so much this year including math center work, writing, poetry, winning trophies in soccer, participating in social action and community service! We are so proud of all of the accomplishments that we have made!! As we look toward the next school year, each child’s ending point becomes a new beginning! During these last few weeks of school we will be wrapping up our field trips, sending off our grade 8 senior class members to the high school, moving to new rooms, hiring new staff to join the Heath team and introducing our children to their new teachers for next year!

School Safety Update
As educators we are charged with a great deal of responsibility for the daily, safe management of our children and each other. Research shows that the preparedness and awareness of our students and staff is tantamount to the welcoming, open school vision that we support at Heath, and enhances a comfortable and safe climate for students. Being an aware community member and attending a secure school also provides an accompanying feeling of unity that we want for our community.
At the time of opening of our new school year, we have in place several procedures designed to help us enhance the protection of our children.
1.The district has installed security cameras at the front and the back doors of the building that allows the monitoring of those entering and exiting the building.
2. We are asking all of our parents and families to enter through the front door, door by the cafeteria link or the preK door in the new wing each morning when staff monitors are present.
3. We have joined other schools in Brookline in the decision to provide school ID cards or badges to be issued to all Heath school staff. The use of an ID badge in the school setting has been known to identify those who serve in an official capacity, act as affirmation that we are adults who belong here, and add an extra feeling of security to buildings. We ask that our staff carry these (wear these) so that students (and adults) are aware of the safe adults in the building and who can be identified for assistance when needed.
4. We have anticipated dates for the annual lock down drill, evacuation drill, and medical alert drill soon to be released to our school calendars. Some of these drills will be announced and some will not in order to practice our emergency protocols.
The faculty and school staff members take our security seriously and we will continue to dedicate our continued vigilance and efforts for a safe and secure place for our children in the Heath community.
